Lunette leaking when not full?

This is my first cycle with my new Lunette cup (I've used a Diva cup for 5 years so I'm not a menstrual cup newbie). So far it's leaked twice today so I think I'm overflowing, but, nope, I take it out and it's not even half full. The air holes are open. Any ideas?

Re: Lunette leaking when not full?

Probably just the way it's sitting in there. Occasionally I have problems with my cups leaking and if I can't get it to quit, I take it out and put in another brand and it usually stops. I have Lunette and several other brands and they all have done it it, so the prob is me.

I wish I had a collection. I did an embarrassing amount of research before I would even switch from the Diva cup. Yeah, I'm that kind of person.

I guess I'm not! Really I can't tell much of a difference in size or performance in any of them. I did not have good success with the Diva Cup, which was my first, and my problems cleared up when I got a different one (LadyCup) but now I'm fairly sure the problems were mostly me not knowing what I was doing. I do have my favorites but really I love them all.

is it opening all the way. I have several different ones (I reviewed them on my blog) I found that some of the softer cups I had to be sure they pop open all the way.

Would you post a link to your blog? I'd love to read your reviews.
